The goal of this project is to create a survey of Publicly Available InVivo Medical Imaging Archives and the underlying software capabilities. It is generally agreed that there is a need for public medical imaging archives to provide the biomedical research community, industry, and academia with access to images that support:
The purpose of this project is to provide a practical guide for the community which that allows them to:
We encourage any feedback from the wider community that may help improve this information or correct any misconceptions stated below. The survey is divided into two sections:
The Cancer Genome Atlas Data Portal contains a wealth of genetic, clinical, and pathology data which that is freely available on large patient populations for over 20 cancer types. This data can be correlated directly to TCGA image collections stored in The Cancer Imaging Archive.
These tools may be helpful to people who need to view images outside of their institutional PACS for research purposes. The Cancer Imaging Program has no formal affiliation with these tools and is offering this list only as a service to the research community.
